HALIFAX, NS – According to owner Peter Burbridge, nanobrewery Bridge Brewing will be opening its doors to the public in the North End of Halifax for the first time tomorrow (Wednesday January 23rd).
In an email to CBN, Burbridge says that this soft opening – set to be followed by a grand opening at a later date – will feature the debut of two flagship Bridge beers, both with a Belgian influence.
The first is Farmhouse Ale, which he describes as follows:
Farmhouse style beers come out of the Belgian and Northern French brewing traditions. We have taken inspiration from these beers and created our version. This beer has a solid malt backbone over which you will notice a refreshing tartness, pleasing bitterness and fruit on the nose. This beer is complex and full flavoured, yet still refreshing.
The other is a blonde ale called Gus’ 65m Ale:
65 meters is the distance from Bridge Brewing’s door to the door of Gus’ Pub. The beer is a simple Belgian Blonde Ale. Brewed with 35% malted wheat, this beer is a serious session beer. Light and refreshing with notes of citrus and subtle spice.
Both beers will be available in 750 ml bottles at the brewery (2576 Agricola St., Halifax), and each will appear on draught at local pubs later this week – Farmhouse Ale at Brooklyn Warehouse, and Gus’ 65m Ale at Gus’ Pub & Grill.
